Hey Hot Rats, you’re never going to believe who just called me today.
That’s right, Tony “Cheese Grits” Chapman.
Tony sounded great, although I have to say that Tony always had a unique southern accent that makes anything he says sound like he’s happy to be saying it. Tony would make a great airline Captain:
Back in 1996 a lot of the crew from the Aaron Spelling TV show “Savannah” hung out after hours at a local bar named “Bud’s” near our stage facilities. Some of the regulars were kids who were going to a nearby school for morticians. One of those guys was from Newberry, South Carolina and said that he knew Tony Chapman. I gave him my card and nine years later BINGO, Tony calls. Pretty cool.
My favorite part of the call was hearing Tony dash off a couple of lines of our legendary fighting song. To say it was magical would be asinine.
It was magical.
